3 College Junior

Diversity: There a large diversity here at UCCS. We have national and international transfer students, people of all colors, and people from different socioeconomic backgrounds and beliefs. Everyone respects each other and I haven't heard of any racism or sexism going on here.

5 College Junior

Diversity: I have always had a diverse group of friends. My own background after leaving home allows me the ability to associate with people from many different cultural and religious backgrounds.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There isn't really a lot of diversity in the college community. the majority are Caucasian

3 College Senior

Diversity: Since UCCS is a commuter school, many of the people that attend UCCS are from Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas. Colorado Springs is a military town, with many Christian primary schools. I don't think that it is a very diverse campus. The most diversity is probably in economic status. While UCCS is not very diverse, I do think that it is an accepting place for people of diversity. People are generally accepting of others.

3 College Senior

Diversity: Diversity is very important to me since I am a black man. At UCCS, diversity has improved somewhat, however it still has a little ways to go. From what I've seen the past 3 years I have attended, only a handful of staff and faculty are concerned with promoting diversity on campus. Some people don't recognize the value and importance of diversity. It gives you different ideas and perspectives and celebrates differences and promotes individual growth. Also, since this is a conservative city and a perdominantly white campus, it is important that we are making sure other races and minorities are comfortable and are being treated fairly. UCCS is making some progress but still has a ways to go.
